The Democrat Party, fueled by the Progressive movement, is masterful in the establishment of narratives in the public psyche. I cannot tell you how many people I know that refuse to vote for Republicans because Republicans only care about rich corporate elitists and hate the little guy. Republicans are all bigots and racists and homophobes. What’s worse, they hate poor people. Republicans are dangerous because of their commitment to Jewish domination of Muslim peoples overseas and their support of Christian Theocracy here at home. Republicans are against education, health care, and science. Republicans want to destroy the environment. Republicans are imperialists that want to impose capitalism on other nations in order to steal their natural resources. The Republican Party is essentially owned by the Military Industrial Complex. HALLIBURTON!
I know, right? Why in the world would anybody vote Republican? They are so EVIL!
All you people reading this that vote Republican, this is who Low-Information Democrats think you are, and they hate you for it. That hatred is significant and essential to the Progressive Movement. Hatred of an enemy creates in the minds of the incensed a commitment to the ends justifying the means. Sure the IRS shouldn’t be targeting specific groups, but these are Tea Party groups and Tea Party groups are racist, anarchistic, and evil. Are we supposed to just let them exist unopposed? Hatred is key. If Republicans aren’t all evil, then there really is no way to justify the terrible abuses of power by the Obama Administration, the Progressive bureaucracy, and the Democrat controlled Senate. Narrative.
Narrative is the weapon The Left uses to castrate centrists. Narrative is the rag they use to gag the opposition. Don’t support capitalism or you hate the environment. Don’t oppose Entitlements or you are a racist that hates the poor, but specifically Hispanics and African-Americans. Don’t oppose the theories of the Big Bang and Global Warming, or you hate science and are an irrational lunatic.
What is the Republican’s answer to the Democrat Narrative?
They don’t seem to have one. And why not? Because the Republican Leadership is run by Corporatists that are solely concerned with their own power and the prosperity and security of companies able to command a constant presence on K Street. They have no political philosophy. They have no real program or platform. They are only interested in themselves and in those that enrich them. But that is not who republicans are. That is not the Republican Base. That does not define Conservatives or Libertarians or Constitutionalists.
We need to consider the importance of our own narrative. We need to define a narrative of Progressives carved in truths so obvious that low-information voters won’t be able to ignore it. We need to paint a picture of the left that regular, average, uneducated Americans can understand. Progressives have taken over our schools and essentially destroyed the collective mind of America. It is rare to run across another person capable of reasoning, of thinking logically, of responding to political stimuli with an objective response. This is the disease for which we must find a cure. I will offer my own, but first, think about who the Left is. Think about what they have done to our country. How would you describe them? How would you define them? Take all those thoughts and cram them into two sentences. Democrats are…. and they aren’t…. what? It’s time to label our enemies and to begin fighting them with their own weapons.
